  • Nice shots of the Doc.

  • Thanks MC…seems like I should’ve had more decks on this list but along the way I ex-patrioted to the West Indies and then spent 4 years in a Mississippi lab toiling over the polymerase chain reaction and fish DNA…Let’s see your list!

  • That’s a lot of skateboards. At $40 a deck that equals $1440.00. I guess that’s not bad over the years.

    Hey – where are the enlargements? Those colors pop!

  • Especially considering that hockey costs me $1200 per YEAR just in ice time/league fees and golf is $50-100 per DAY (or country club membership fees).

  • Let’s hear it for Dr. Brad’s MOM, who supported his skating all those years!!! Yay, Mom!

  • A nice addition would be an approximated year of ownership. I believe Dr, Brad could really sink his teeth in to recalling the years,perhaps a little story would insue. When are the Krhons going to visit again, possibly Carol we miss her to.

  • I think he had a little affair with Mr, Mike Frasier in COLO.

  • i started my list, you’ve inspired me to try remembering all the decks i’ve ridden, not easy though.

  • Hard to remember all 35 years worth.
    1. Fifteen toes (metal wheels)
    2. surfshop generic oak
    3. generic Bahne knockoff fiberglass (chicago trucks)
    4. woodshop kicktail

  • Time for another stroll down memory lane:
    1) Black Knight (from Sears, clay wheels)
    2) Grentec GT (plastic, but with urethane!)
    3) Hobie Freestyle (fiberglass, no kick, but you don’t need kick if you’re just going down hills imitating skiing)
    4) G&S Stacy Peralta Warptail
    5) G&S Warptail 2
    6) G&S Teamrider
    7) Town & Country Darren Ho (pig time)
    8) Variflex El Gato (prob. my favorite of all)
    9) Sims Hosoi
    10) Sims Jeff Phillips (things are slowing down as “real life” intrudes)
    11) Santa Cruz Jeff Kendall-Lounger (ever-slick)
    12) Generic skate shop popsicle 7.75″ (hated it, hardly rode it)
    13) Anti-Hero Big Eagle 8.3″ (better)
    14) Alva Los Muertes (current)
    15) Novmbr Team Shape (got it yesterday, just set it up)
    I must have started just after MC, so obviously some breaks from skating here and there, as you guys have me beat by more than double. Doing my best to catch up now, though.

  • Egbert: Regarding acute alcohol toxicosis in large hoof-stock, was it overweight?

  • Funny thing is last night (Sunday after Sleestok) i got sucked into “Lost World” (Jurassic Park 2) and i saw a Terradactyl at the end… (Dr.B’s favorite animal)

    Why didn’t these birds just fly to the mainland? Can you explain?

  • Pterodactyl – sorry
    holy mispelling

  • Funny- I started watching that movie last night too but stopped after a few minutes and proclaiming to my wife how awful it was…

    Stay Gay,
    Dr. Krohn

  • I remember the teenage Brad skateboarding in front of the Ten Shitty Guys house in Urbana back in the 80’s. He would skate all day and then put on his best Replacements garb (he worshipped that band I think) and raise hell all night at Eddie’s, Trito’s, etc. I think he also had the world’s best fake I.D. at this time – His older sister was dating one of the Bowery Boys and he always seemed to sneek in to see bands when he was way too young to be there…Good to see him still skating and a doctor now because I had actually heard once that he was dead!?

  • Dead? Just dead to his friends! Son? I have no sun! Har har. Speaking of Ten Shitty Guys… (Ihtink it’s down right now. I can’t check because it’s blocked at work, not for content, just because of the name.

  • The doc is a legend a legend in his own time. Kids follow him around skate parks like he is Mother Goose. It has been said that not only can he comminicate with mammals, but reptiles too. His older sister is a goddess and people worship her as such.

  • i fought him in Steamboat, he was wearing a shark skin suit with a red paper heart pinned on the sleeve and he thought he was hot shit, i thought he was a pussy but he didn’t back down…who cares now

  • A bright green no-brand plastic banana board
    A messed up, small wooden board that some kid brought from Poland (ok, I didnt really use it)

  • Sorry I’m so late in posting but this is in response to Brad’s sister, Carole’s post in #19 above — Carole, you are too funny! People calling you a goddess? That’s a good one. I almost wet myself from laughing so hard when I read that. I guess it’s true though, that is, if “goddess” is really a euphemism for coke whore! You’re hilarious, Carole!
